Samson Fish

These Samson Fish were circling the wreck of the Key Biscayne oil rig near Lancelin, 100km north of Perth. This shot was taken at the end of the second dive and we were on top of the up-turned hull of the rig at 26 metres deep and looking down towards the bottom. The bottom is at 42 metres and is littered with wreckage and the 100 metre long legs of the rig. "Sambo's" are quite a large and powerful fish, around a metre long, and are fun to catch but are poor eating.
